Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-22 00:04:06 UTC
Steps:
1) Open Impress
2) Switch to master slide mode
3) Select title placeholder textbox and change font to italics
4) Notice textbox border and the 'Title Area for AutoLayouts' text are still present
5) Undo
6) Click inside the title textbox and change font to italics
7) Click outside of textbox
8) Notice textbox border and 'Title Area for AutoLayouts' text are now gone
9) Save file, close and reopen
10) Switch to master slide mode
11) textbox border and 'Title Area for AutoLayouts' text still not present

There should never be a situation where the border and placeholder type text should be removed when in master slide mode, and there should never be a situation where the border should be removed when in normal mode. This is bad UX as it makes it difficult to select the textbox.

Cannot follow this step. Never seen the title area to disappear, and when I change the font style it remains where it is.

Version: 5.3.0.0.alpha0+ crashes occasionally, but when I go through the steps it's the same as for fresh.

Ok, reproduced with 5.2.1.2 / Ubuntu 16.04.

In 5.2.1.2 / Windows 7, I get an extra undo step in the list after clicking outside the frame after the first undo: "Edit text of Title text 'Click to...' "
The 'Title Area for AutoLayouts' and textbox border doesn't disappear after second undo step, though (but then there are two entries in the undo list).

Jay, you mentioned for you it occurs in Windows, too, did you notice extra undo entries?

I have 1 undo after step 4 and step 7 on my old 08-29 windows build, but with bug 102343 fixed, there is now two undos after step 7 on yesterday's linux build.

I've just reproduced this bug with LO 6.0.1.1 using a different set of steps:

1. Select "File>New>Presentation"

2. Hit "Cancel" on "Select a Template" dialogue to get a plain blank presentation.

3. Select "View>Master Slide"

4. Left click in "Click to edit the outline text format" text

5. Right click, select "Edit style..."

6. Under "Font" in the resulting Dialogue Box, change the Font or select Italics. Click "OK".

7. Select "File>Save"

8. Pick any name, press "Save"

At this point the "Object Area for AutoLayouts" label on the slide disappears.

The problem is also in the saved file, as you can verify by closing this copy and opening the saved one.

This problem isn't just cosmetic - at some later point, after further modification and saving/loading, LO can re-create the "Object Area for AutoLayouts" text box, exactly duplicating the content of the existing non-Autolayout text box. I don't have a set of steps to reliably recreate this duplication, but it's happened to me more than once. Any subsequent change to either the unlabelled text box or the AutoLayout box (e.g changing their position or font) does not affect the other one, and LO will not allow either to be deleted. At the very least this makes the master slide look very messy.

In response to Comment 7 (MassPing-UntouchedBug):

"Steps to reproduce" in Comment 6 still provokes the buggy behaviour in:

Version: 6.2.0.3
Build ID: 98c6a8a1c6c7b144ce3cc729e34964b47ce25d62
CPU threads: 4; OS: Mac OS X 10.11.6; UI render: default; VCL: osx; 
Locale: en-GB (en.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

(However, with this version I don't seem to be able to reproduce the bug using the  "Steps to reproduce" in the orginal bug report).
